Hi Folks. I trust that you are all keeping safe and well. I know that most/many of you have now had your first vaccination and are looking forward to your second. Fingers crossed that we may be back in the Hammond Hall by late Spring/early Summer.

I’m sorry to report that Bill Holmes is poorly. He has had a stroke, is in hospital at the moment, and is waiting for an MRI scan which should be done tomorrow. Shirley says that he has improved slightly since he went in, he is cheerful and is having a joke with his nurses. He is keen to get back home! Bill – we all send you our very best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

Thanks to all who wished me good luck in the recent BCL Individual final. I’m afraid that I came a rather distant but well-deserved second! Andy
